Option Name:external_acl_type
Default Value:none
Suggested Config:

	This option defines external acl classes using a helper program to
	look up the status

	  external_acl_type name [options] FORMAT.. /path/to/helper [helper arguments..]


	  ttl=n		TTL in seconds for cached results (defaults to 3600
			for 1 hour)
			TTL for cached negative lookups (default same
			as ttl)
	  children=n	number of processes spawn to service external acl
			lookups of this type. (default 5).
	  concurrency=n	concurrency level per process. Only used with helpers
	  		capable of processing more than one query at a time.
			Note: see compatibility note below
	  cache=n	result cache size, 0 is unbounded (default)
	  grace=	Percentage remaining of TTL where a refresh of a
			cached entry should be initiated without needing to
			wait for a new reply. (default 0 for no grace period)
	  protocol=2.5  Compatibility mode for Squid-2.5 external acl helpers

	FORMAT specifications

	  %LOGIN	Authenticated user login name
	  %EXT_USER	Username from external acl
	  %IDENT	Ident user name
	  %SRC		Client IP
	  %SRCPORT	Client source port
	  %DST		Requested host
	  %PROTO	Requested protocol
	  %PORT		Requested port
	  %METHOD	Request method
	  %MYADDR	Squid interface address
	  %MYPORT	Squid http_port number
	  %PATH		Requested URL-path (including query-string if any)
	  %USER_CERT	SSL User certificate in PEM format
	  %USER_CERTCHAIN SSL User certificate chain in PEM format
	  %USER_CERT_xx	SSL User certificate subject attribute xx
	  %USER_CA_xx	SSL User certificate issuer attribute xx
	  %{Header}	HTTP request header
	  %{Hdr:member}	HTTP request header list member
			HTTP request header list member using ; as
			list separator. ; can be any non-alphanumeric
	 %ACL		The ACL name
	 %DATA		The ACL arguments. If not used then any arguments
			is automatically added at the end

	In addition to the above, any string specified in the referencing
	acl will also be included in the helper request line, after the
	specified formats (see the "acl external" directive)

	The helper receives lines per the above format specification,
	and returns lines starting with OK or ERR indicating the validity
	of the request and optionally followed by additional keywords with
	more details.

	General result syntax:

	  OK/ERR keyword=value ...

	Defined keywords:

	  user=		The users name (login also understood)
	  password=	The users password (for PROXYPASS login= cache_peer)
	  message=	Error message or similar used as %o in error messages
			(error also understood)
	  log=		String to be logged in access.log. Available as
			%ea in logformat specifications

	If protocol=3.0 (the default) then URL escaping is used to protect
	each value in both requests and responses.

	If using protocol=2.5 then all values need to be enclosed in quotes
	if they may contain whitespace, or the whitespace escaped using \.
	And quotes or \ characters within the keyword value must be \ escaped.

	When using the concurrency= option the protocol is changed by
	introducing a query channel tag infront of the request/response.
	The query channel tag is a number between 0 and concurrency-1.

	Compatibility Note: The children= option was named concurrency= in
	Squid-2.5.STABLE3 and earlier, and was accepted as an alias for the
	duration of the Squid-2.5 releases to keep compatibility. However,
	the meaning of concurrency= option has changed in Squid-2.6 to match
	that of Squid-3 and the old syntax no longer works.
